A man beheaded his friend in a fit of rage after he accused the man of molesting his girlfriend.
The incident began when 17-year-old Olena Matsneva, told her 16-year-old boyfriend Nikita Rasskazov, that she was molested at a party.
Matsneva claimed that 19-year-old Artyom Shustov and another man, touched her private parts and her breasts.
Matsneva also had a photo, showing the 19-year-old man resting his head on her breasts while she was sitting on a couch.
People at the party allegedly admitted that Shustov pressured the woman into performing a sex act on him.
When Rasskazov learned about the alleged sexual assault of his girlfriend, he confronted his friend Shustov. The two began arguing before Rasskazov took out a knife and beheaded his older friend in a fit of rage.
Rasskazov left the headless body in a wooded area in a park in Komsomolsk-on-Amur. He placed the head in a bag and he took it to his girlfriend to “prove his love for her.”
Rasskazov confessed to killing Shustov with a kitchen knife, and he was arrested.
Rasskazov said that he did not intended to kill his friend, and that he regrets his actions, which occurred when he was “blinded by rage.”
Because he a minor, Rasskazov faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.
Matsneva’s mother said that her daughter was in love with Rasskazov. “My daughter blossomed since she began dating Nikita, who was a very calm and quiet guy,” she said.
The mother also said that she asked her daughter why she chose Nikita rather than someone older, but she insisted that Nikita was the best.
